I've always been a keybinder when it comes to my skills and spells. And, I've always been a mouse user, when it comes to my character's movement. The only time I use my mouse to click a spell, is when it's one I use rarely and don't have enough comfortable space to bind. But, that's never a problem, because the spells/abilities are used so infrequently andusually not in battle. But, even my mount key is bound. I can't imagine clicking my mount macro with my mouse every time I wanted to mount up or dismount. I think it would drive me batty.That being said, to each their own. I think everyone has a play style that suits them best and they're most comfortable with, physically. And, I doubt one is actually better than the other. But, I do know that for myself, keybinding spells and abilities has always been better and using my mouse to move will always be the most comfortable. I do have a question, though, for all those who use their mice to move in WoW -- I have it set it so that the camera, of course, doesn't follow me in any way. I've basically taken advantage of every setting available to me, to give me total free reign over my charachter, with my mouse. The camera shouldn't follow me, adjust itself, or do anything of the like, ever. But, something that I've found, ever since I first started playing this game. Is that, if I use my left mouse button to look around and my right mouse button to move, which is I do many times, my camera will often eventually shift my viewing angle around, to whatever direction my right mouse button last had my character looking. I don't know if that makes sense at all. x3It drives me nuts, though. It happens all of the time. I don't think there's anyone to correct it, either. I know it's nothing with the settings, as I've gone through them over 50 times. It's just something built in that happens, I believe. Although, I wish that they would fix that, so it wouldn't.

Wow, insane amount of typos. That's what I get for commenting minutes after waking up. I'm so sorry. :(

i think it may be that, when using the right mouse button You are controlling both the camera And the position of your character, where as the left mouse button controls only the camera. assuming the right mouse button is for the direction you are pointing/Aiming Your character, when using the mouse for movement it'd be logical for the camera to shift in that direction as well. i am left handed and played most comfortably as a rogue/hunter (with the mix of instant and situational abilities) using the WASD for movement, Also i use Q/E to strife often, and click anything not on the 1-7 keys. also keep the camera above me Diablo style for melee/healer's, and more 'Tunnel Vision' like for range/spell casting.Hope that helped :3

I had a thought regarding your problem. Pressing both the left and right buttons causes your character to "run & steer", so that you run forward, moving the mouse around to turn your entire character. I just took a look at my own configuration since I use this a lot, and according to my keybind settings, "run & steer" are both clear; I don't see any setting at all that says "left and right mouse button", or "button 1 and 2", or any combination like that.It looks like this may be default behavior that you can't change, unless an addon will disable it.
